Release Highlights
  • New Java Control Panel Option to Disable Sponsors
    Prior to this release, to disable sponsor offers at the time of installation, the user can de-select the option during installation or can pass SPONSORS=0 as a commandline option. In this release, a new Java Control Panel (JCP) option to disable sponsors is available. To use this option, go to the JCP Advanced tab, and check or uncheck Suppress sponsor offers when updating Java. This option is applicable to 32- and 64-bit Windows operating systems. ยป More information
  • Bug Fix: Using RMI from a restricted environment may cause a NullPointerException
    If an application uses RMI and runs in a restricted environment (i.e. Java Plugin, Java Web Start), it may not work. In particular, if you run a UI from an RMI callback, a NullPointerException is likely to be thrown.
Java Expiration Date

The JRE expires whenever a new release with security vulnerability fixes becomes available. Critical patch updates, which contain security vulnerability fixes, are announced one year in advance on Critical Patch Updates, Security Alerts and Third Party Bulletin. This JRE (version 7u65) will expire with the release of the next critical patch update scheduled for October 14, 2014.

For systems unable to reach the Oracle Servers, a secondary mechanism expires this JRE (version 7u65) on November 15, 2014. After either condition is met (new release becoming available or expiration date reached), Java will provide additional warnings and reminders to users to update to the newer version.
